Birukou, Aliaksandr and Blanzieri, Enrico and Giorgini, Paolo (2009) Implicit Culture Framework for behavior transfer. UNSPECIFIED. (Unpublished)
People belong to different communities: business communities, Web 2.0 communities, just to name a few. In this chapter we show that experience acquired by people in communities constitute community culture. We introduce the problem of culture transfer between or within communities and propose a domain-independent approach for transferring community culture. First, we formalize the notion of culture, which includes behavior, knowledge, artifacts, best practices, etc. Second, using this formalism, we propose the Implicit Culture Framework, which is an agent-based framework for transferring behavior between community members or between communities. Finally, we present and evaluate a system for web service discovery developed using the Implicit Culture Framework.
